    Sent a message to Navy Tac Demo's page, they replied "interesting, we'll look into it and post if needed"

    Yes that fog started earlier then the blues not as bad but then rolled in hard for the blues. I always pic bad day to go.

    They left it vague when asked if it was a misunderstanding saying "they will post something if needed- stay tuned!"

    As of right now it's still listed on their Facebook page in their events section. Hope they're a go because with it being about 2 months out the lineup is looking a little empty for the show.

    FYI - The show just posted this unfortunate news about the F-18 Demo status on their FB page:

    "Due to runway construction at JFK, our air space has been restricted for this year's show.
    While we would love to have them, we are unfortunately unable to accommodate the requirements
    of the F-18 Demonstration Team this year. We look forward to hosting them in the future,
    and can’t wait for another great show. See you at the beach!"

    Meanwhile, after 17 years the Wikes Barre/Scranton Airshow is back this year for August 12 and 13! And to boot they already have the F-22 and F-18 demos locked up! Can't wait to see what else they have lined up.

    This was my GOTO airshow back in the 80s and 90's. Bethpage needs to change things up.

    Well to be honest last year with all the demo teams and the Heritage Flight with the F-22 the show was quite good but, and no disrespect to the aerobatic guys, it can get tedious sitting on the beach without some well placed THUNDER!! And it doesnt help this year that the show is at the mercy of JFK operations!! Hey maybe those inbounds can drop down low and give us some nice flybys

    Guess the guy running demo team's schedule was last to find out!

    It is a shame. Spoiled with the Snowbirds and Breitling teams last two years. But it's a shame there's no other demos. I wish the Redbull chopper was still around, never got to see that. Would be nice to see the leap frogs or something different. I remember the Misty Blues backed out a few years ago.

    Hopefully we at the 106th RQW can give you a proper SAR demo.

    Wow, I just finally went to the website to check out who will be performing this year... and then came straight here! What the heck, this is the weakest one yet, very disappointing. Got VERY spoiled that year they had the A-10, B-1B, F-22, F-18 etc etc. Must've been 5 or 6 years ago now? What a show that was!
